  1. I haven’t commented on this forum for a (what feels like) a long time now but it seems the issue of bread is very important to many here . On PA this morning from Roscoff - some strange long, thin rolls were offered at the breakfast buffet. No more triangles just as anticipated However, when walking past the commodore lounge galley kitchen I glimpsed a tray of what seemed to be triangular rolls. I stepped back for a closer look. Yes, triangle. And even though I didn’t have breakfast in the lounge, can confirm with others in our group who did that triangular rolls were 100% offered. I’m t
  2. By the looks of the ship guide (I know it isn't really a technical document), MSM can park vehicles on Decks 1 to 6. 2 and 4 are blocked off I believe. So assuming boarding takes place on Decks 3 and 5 (maybe 6 but not both), I would've thought there's an internal ramp to get between decks 5 and 6, and also 3 and 1. That's my logic but I could be wrong.
  3. I've found a couple of Bilbao-Plymouth crossings that can be booked but aren't being advertised on schedules (I think someone once described them as "easter egg crossings") on December 7 and March 15 when CF makes a couple of visits to Plymouth, meaning she's doing Ports-Bilbao-Plym-Sant. Think she's done Bilbao-Plymouth a couple of times before.
  4. Yes, agreed, I would've thought BF would prefer Brest over a Polish mini-break but either way I can't see that there'll be any 'major' changes in only 2 weeks
  5. I'd be surprised to see her off to Gdansk for such a short period of time, especially given the time needed to get there and back again. What's the shortest time we've seen a ship in Gdansk for??
  6. Hmmm, that's odd, it's worked for me, maybe it would work in a different browser e.g. chrome / firefox ???
  7. If you mean when making a booking, it should say the name of the ship on the right hand side after you've chosen the sailing you want.
  8. Many years ago when I locked myself in the toilet in the cabin and couldn't unlock it. Parents had to get ship's engineer to come and take off the door!! Can't remember the ship (perhaps either Quiberon or Val)
  9. There was another ships monthly a couple of years back with pages on cap finistere and King seaways I'll see if I can dig it out (but might be in storage at the moment as moving house)
  10. WAS elegant and attractive, until that.......thing......was put on top of her about this time last year....😑😵
  11. How long was tat's charter again? 2 years rings a bell (but might be a number I've picked from nowhere, in fact thinking about it now we've already reached 2 years haven't we?🙄🤔). I'm sure they must be thinking about getting a replacement for her sooner or later as well (probably not a new build though).
  12. With Gareth - wouldn't be too upset if normandie left the fleet first. That said if we had a new build to replace her it would definetly take a few years from now to plan / build / have sea trials and deliver, by which time I feel Bretagne will have gone
  13. I didn't know the sulphuric acid was being discharged into the sea? Seawater is slightly alkaline anyway therefore neutralising the acidity of the sulphuric acid. See here: http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/blog/post/47922/Scrubber-Technology-for-Our-Ships---How-Does-it-Work
  14. I'm with solo. Better to fund a new ship, even if it is more. We'll have another "proper BF ship" then, like Bretagne.
  15. OK I'm confused. It says the sailing was overbooked which prevented 70 passengers from travelling. It then goes onto say that tidal restrictions forced the captain to leave early leaving people behind. And then the protests come in and mess with my head. Perhaps someone could clarify what happened? Thanks.
  16. A schedule keeping disruption to an absolute minimum = No sailings Plymouth/Roscoff for 2/3 months ???
  17. They're a French company, so euro I would presume. Though that's only a guess
  18. Captain Cédéric ? I haven't seen him on this thread yet (though he probably its just my poor hearing and spelling :cool:)
  19. I've added the 'speculation' tag to this on Wikipedia.
  20. One review which caught my eye..... "Use Brittany ferries fast cat to france, then get a local ferry to the Channel Islands, is certainly my best advice."
  21. No I don't agree either, MSM copes very well IMO though some will argue she operates a more sheltered route.
  22. Found the Condor safety 'rap' thought it was very good! [video=youtube;hcKkFVDGpT0]
  23. Your waterjet video did go through (and it's very good) but it's in the St Helen thread
  24. What an interesting name, certainly not one I would have thought about. I like the new logo, will this be put onto the side of Liberation and Clipper / Goodwill?
